WM Low has been in active practice since he was called to the bar in March 1992. Prior to setting up W.M Low & Partners, he was practising in M/s Khattar Wong & Partners, one of the big four law firms in Singapore.
WM Low did his Secondary and A Levels education in Raffles Institution and Raffles Junior College and is conversant in Mandarin and other dialects. He is able to draft documents in mandarin and liases with lawyers from China and other jurisdiction with ease. He also has a CMT qualification issued by MTA, USA, and had passed an examination on Arbitration Law & Practice conducted by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and Singapore Institute of Arbitrators in 1994.
WM Low was previously on the Legal Assistance Scheme for Capital Offences (“LASCO”) in 1994 and Legal Aid Assistance Scheme, and acted in various pro bono matters. He has been actively involved in criminal as well as family cases.
He was invited by Chief Justice to sit on the Inquiry Panel in 2015.
WM Low has also dealt with experts from HSA on cases involving alleged forgery of documents and on issues involving whether the handwritten signatures were genuine or otherwise.
WM Low has acted in a few capital cases (drug trafficking). He had successfully obtained a reduction of a murder charge to rioting.
The slant is towards white collar crime in recent years (CBT, Corruption & Companies Act Offences, Securities Futures Act), although we have done quite well in various common criminal cases such as cheating, maid abuse, molest, upskirt videos, rioting, forgery, theft, assault etc,
For complicated matters in which the clients are able to afford the costs, we are able to call our contacts to form a team for the Defence- senior criminal lawyers, ex-police officers, ex- dpps, ex- trial JO, practicing pyschiatrist, private investigators- to help to advance and strategize the Defence.
